The Checkered Demon

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm 22 and from Texas. I'm awesome.
If you think you’re supporting women by supporting Anita Sarkeesian, you’re wrong. She’s the puppet that Jonathan McIntosh is using to push his agenda.

Why #gamergate is important

Fun fact: Morgan Ramsay, founder of the Entertainment Media Counsel, did an objective study of how much of gaming journalism talks about sexism or social justice.
To do this, he downloaded 130,524 articles from 37 RSS feeds of 23 outlets, including The Escapist, Rock Paper Shotgun, CVG, Edge Online, Eurogamer, Gamasutra, Game Informer, GamePolitics, GamesBeat, GamesIndustry International, GameSpot, GamesRadar, IGN, IndieGames, Joystiq, Kotaku, Massively, MCV, NowGamer, PocketGamer.biz, Polygon, Shacknews and VG24/7, published over a period of twelve months. He then did a search on how often these games articles mentioned sexism, feminism, or misogyny.
The result? Over a period of one year, 0.41% of 130,524 articles referenced feminism, feminist, sexism, sexist, misogyny, and misogynist explicitly. 
That’s less than half of one percent.
So next time you hear someone whining that “feminism is taking over video games journalism”, what they’re actually whining about is that feminism exists in video games journalism.

But the issue here is that those fucking 99.59% of the articles get buried under those others because of how OMG PROGRESSIVE! These other articles are. If you think that these sites aren’t pushing this in your face, you don’t look at them. Also, it hasn’t been within 12 months, it’s within the past like 6 that it’s gotten worse and worse. And besides that, you’re shifting focus again. GAMERGATE IS ABOUT ETHICS NOT FEMINISM YOU FUCKING TOOL.

could you give an example of these bad ethics bc unless you’re talking about major publishers buying good reviews for decades idk what you’re talking about
also you should be yelling at the op who made the comic if you think it’s not about feminism. the commenter only addressed the claim they made
bonus round: you sure seem to have a problem with people addressing rampant misogyny

Ok, we have a network of these Game Journalists who are all linked through this “Secret Club” called GameJournosPro, and have been quoted to say things like “Who HASN’T slept with a dev?” when they’re supposed to be adhering to Journalism Ethics and Standards.
The comic is accurate because people are using SJWs and Misogyny claims to deflect everything that’s been revealed.
Bonus Round: I hate when people turn things into a fucking gender issue when it’s not relevant, and that’s hilarious that you used “Rampant Misogyny”, hella buzzword use there.
I should just try to be less problematic huh?

yes i went ahead and looked up gamejournopros and it’s nothing but a bunch of colleagues talking amongst themselves. no conspiracy. talking about #gameethics and favoritism and corruption in the commercial game industry is fine but ffs #gamergate was tacky and tainted by toxic bigots from its very inception

Spoken like someone who is playing on one side and is going “LALALALA I CAN’T HEAR YOU” to the other. If you think what’s going on with GameJournoPros is “nothing but a bunch of colleagues talking amongst themselves”, you’re absolutely wrong. You should just listen and understand, just like I’ve been told from the other side nonstop.
